Hello Everyone!


Here is our weekly seafood recipe!  This week we are showing you just how easy it is to make a traditional Louisiana Seafood Gumbo using Denicola's Gumbo Mix!



·      1 package of Denicola’s Gumbo Mix

·      2 ½ quarts of water or chicken stock

·      Seafood of choice – we use 1 pound of shrimp, raw & peeled, 1 pack of Gumbo crabs (4-5) or 1 pound of lump crabmeat and one pint of oysters.

·      1 stick of butter (optional)

·      Steamed white rice




Combine Denicola’s Gumbo mix with water or stock in a large pot, stir and bring to a boil.  Cover pot and lower heat to medium low and cook for 30 minutes.


Raise heat and bring to a boil, then add shrimp, crab & oysters.  Reduce temp to simmer, cover and let gumbo cook on low for 45 minutes, stirring occasionally.


For additional richness add a stick of real butter to the pot after it has been simmering for 15 - 20 minutes.


Serve over white rice!


Additional sides:  Potato salad, French bread, white wine, File’ powder (check out this blog on how to make your own File')!
